What’s Your Color?

StdAthleticColorsGIFOne of the best ways to fashionably stand out is through color. A bold flash of color catches the eye and can pull a whole look together. The right color can also take an outfit from common to classy.  Since everything we do at Joseph Wendt Custom Clothiers is all about doing it “custom,” it is all about you!

Most men don’t want to think too much about the colors that look best on them, or try on a rainbow of shirts to see which matches their skin tone. They want to be in and out of the store.  But just like wearing the wrong size, the wrong color for the situation can make you look awkward and uncomfortable, and completely ruin your look. So try on all those colors, you’ll be glad that you did!

Now, while different occasions do indeed call for different colors, you can find different shades of the required color to make you look your best. You can also choose a textured fabric to give your look even more depth.

Remember, different colors can give off different vibes. For instance, black, navy, and red are “power” colors, while paler blues, greens, and yellows give off a more relaxed feel. We can help you pick and choose how you want to style your look based on the occasion, and your personality.

Some colors are pretty universally flattering, such as eggplant, teal, navy, emerald green, and blush. Our stores are stocked with tons and tons of fabric books, which make finding a unique match just for you easy. Coloring is just another perk of custom clothing! We create your whole outfit to make you look your very best with color and cut, individually tailored to you (pun intended).

Also, all coloring guidelines are just that, guidelines! If you want to rock a certain popular color, go for it! Fashion is all about trying new things, because, as always, if you look good, you feel good.

Best Dressed in 2013

All of the big fashion magazines have weighed in with their “best dressed men” list of the past year, and some of the choices were universal, like Justin Timberlake, who showed up on virtually every list, or Idris Elba, one of our favorites.  Others were a bit more unexpected, like Esquire‘s insane/brilliant choice of Pope Francis as the “best dressed” of 2013!

We’ve compiled a gallery of our favorite choices from the selections of all of the mags, to put together our own “best dressed” celebrities list.  They are in no particular order, because picking a single “best” out of this group would be one of the most difficult choices imaginable.  This was a great year for menswear! Let us know who you think should be in this gallery, and who shouldn’t, and who you think was the best overall!
